Sally Ito Hybrid Book Launch

Wednesday Oct 05 2022 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium, Streaming on YouTube

Join us as we celebrate the launch of Sally Ito's new poetry collection Heart's Hydrography (Turnstone Press). This event features a reading and a discussion of the book. Hosted by Joanne Epp.

The launch will be hosted live in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers, Grant Park and also available as a simultaneous YouTube stream featuring live chat. Before arriving, please review details of how to attend physical events here at the store.

In her fourth book of poetry, Sally Ito traverses the complex channels and tributaries of a heart mapped by the ineffable pull of family and faith. In Ito’s careful hands, this same heart becomes ocean and cathedral, a hallowed space in which poetic organ-song crystalizes into poems resonant with hope, love, doubt, and longing. Heart's Hydrography charts the vital ebb and flow between the personal and the divine.

Born in Taber, Alberta, Sally Ito is the author of a memoir, a short fiction collection, and four books of poetry including Heart's Hydrography. She is a translator of Japanese poetry. Ito teaches creative writing in Winnipeg, where she lives with her husband.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Joanne Epp has published poetry in literary journals including The New Quarterly, Prairie Fire, and Canadian Literature. Her first book, Eigenheim, earned her a nomination for the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer. Her second book, Cattail Skyline, was shortlisted for the Lansdowne Prize for Poetry.
